More Info

"Verpackt in ein groformtagiges S/W-Gest Cover kommt die erste SCP-LP daher. Die Aufnahmen entstanden in Paris im Juni 1997. Concrete music based on glass, wood and water manipulation: rubbing, tinkling, lisping, resonance, sharp & bass tones confrontation. Raw calm. Das ganze auf 250gr vinyl und lim. auf 365copies. V.a. die A-Seite,die eigentlich auf 45 rpm luft, ist sehr schn, und kann auch auf 33 rpm in Entzcken versetzen." [Drone Rec. info zum LP release 1998]


"SCP makes astonishingly hermetic electro-acoustic brain-melters that resist being easily described. This is no exception. There are (thankfully) no simple emotional signifiers or familiar genre-exercise moves to help you along. For active listening. Favorite track: ...Cette Haine Dirige Contre Lui Mordait Son Marbre Et Sculptait Sa Beaut.. " [Howard Stelzer on Bandcamp]
